"underrated" releases from 2019

don't like the word underrated tbh. using it lightly !! before you make your year end lists check out some of these.
1Oli XL
Rogue Intruder, Soul Enhancer


uk bass/ idm/ 2 step/ ambient

cold yet inviting textures all over this. probably the best electronic album of 2019
2Merzbow and Vanity Productions
Coastal Erosion


harsh noise/ ambient/ drone

even if you don't like noise music you'll probably still find a lot of enjoyment in this. nothing abrasive
3Fluids
Exploitative Practices


brutal death metal/ deathgrind

if you like Mortician check this. mexican drug cartel samples instead of sick horror samples.
4GooNew
Goonew 2


trap

this guy has the best take on the Hoodrich Pablo Juan flow. the beats on this are next level too
5Organ Tapes
Hunger In Me Living


ambient pop/ alt r&b/ dream pop

imagine if bladee and cocteau twins made a group and its basically this
6Caterina Barbieri
Ecstatic Computation


prog electronic/ ambient/ trance

futuristic ambient music. great late night music, great aesthetic as well
7Mefitis
Emberdawn


black/ death metal

no gimmick blackened death metal. old school vibes as well
8Lurid Panacea
The Insidious Poisons


brutal death/ grind

filthy brutal death metal. fairly technical as well.
9Anthony Naples
Fog FM


house/ dub techno

really well done. enjoy this in the mornings when i'm making coffee and on long car rides
10Malibu
One Life


ambient/ new age

beautiful voice. hoping this will be her breakthrough album. she's friends with Julianna Barwick too idk
11Special Request
Vortex


hardcore breaks/ acid techno

great album for cardio. the cover put me off initially but its a great album. Special Request also put out an IDM record this year which is worth checking out as well.
12Coucou Chloe
NAUGHTY DOG


experimental hip hop/ deconstructed club/ trap
13Gardsghastr
Slit Throat Requiem


symphonic black metal

if you like the early EPs/demos from Emperor be sure to give this a listen
14Jim Haynes
Inconclusive


noise/ industrial

unsettling noise
15Phyllomedusa
Fijian Fantasies


sludge/ goregrind

filthy music with a touch of humor. this guy has a ton of material and this is definitely at the top
16Appropriate Savagery
Praise & Shame, the Burning Heart


ambient/ noise

warm and full of life. great music to take a walk in the woods to
177038634357
Love Unbound


ambient/ sound collage

great synth on this. not as good as xpetal but still a very worthwhile release
18Internazionale
Avatar in Life


ambient/ post-industrial

i thought that this was really underrated and underappreciated this year. my favorite release from posh isolation this year
19Black Kruud
Into the Cobwebs of Abysmal Torment


black metal

evil, raw black metal. whats not to like
20All Your Sisters
Trust Ruins


gothic/ post-punk/ darkwave

eerie post-punk with edges of goth rock. the best all your sisters album by a big margin
21Magnitude
To Whatever Fateful End


metalcore/ hardcore

in your face early 00s style tough guy hardcore meets metalcore
22Deathprod
Occulting Disk


dark ambient

underrated in the sense that this isn't getting the warm welcome I had hoped it would. really nothing wrong with this. its nice to hear new deathprod music again even if its a little more aggressive than his previous works
23Nathan Micay
Blue Spring


ambient trance

love this album. worth checking for the cover art alone
24Rian Treanor
Ataxia


deconstructed club/ idm/ footwork

very futuristic. a lot to process on the first listen but a really worthwhile release. excited for any new material
25Cold Showers
Motionless


post-punk

catchy post-punk. one dud on this though but other than that this is a great album
26IVVVO
doG


deconstructed club/ prog electronic

really unique take on decon club. crazy samples all over this thing. love it
27Human Effluence
Promo 2019


goregrind

disgusting ep from this goregrind group. only four minutes long so there's no reason you shouldn't check this out

https://humaneffluence.bandcamp.com/album/promo-2019
28Enforced
At The Walls


crossover thrash metal

if you like Red Death, Power Trip or early Cro-Mags and you haven't heard this yet then you're seriously missing out. they're going on tour with Red Death soon so be sure to check them out
29Vosbud
Almannagjá


atmospheric black metal

great nordic, icelandic black metal. yet another great take on black metal from iceland.
30Take Offense
Keep An Eye Out


crossover thrash

if you liked the Enforced album be sure to check this out as well. the vocals could take some getting used to but the riffs are there
31Wampyric Rites
Reflections Of A Frostbitten Moon


black metal

cold and frosty black metal. if you like the holy trinity albums from Darkthrone or that one album Forest put out then be sure to check this out
32Cakedog
Doggystyle


footwork/ juke

another solid addition to Cakedog's (aka Ahnnu) already impressive discog
33ECCO2K
E


experimental alt r&b ? / uk bass/ pop/ cloud rap?

long awaited. just putting this on here because it deserves all the love
